About this Plan

Tiger Moth. Free flight scale biplane for Cox .049 power.

Quote:- "The de Havilland 82 first took to the air thirty one years ago, in the Golden Age of wind-and-wire flying. It's still one fo the best - and most popular - trainers in the world. Some 8,000 Tiger Moths were built between 1931 and 1943, of which many hundreds are still in use today.

Our model is a faithful copy of the original, and shares its prototype's ability in smooth, stable flight. Construction of the 32in replica, like the full-scale ship, is simple, featuring a box fuselage and constant-chord wings; an easy project with all the old-time beauty of open cockpits and strut-mounted wings. Optional pendulum control adds extra realism to the flight pattern, or a bellcrank may be installed for control-line sport flying on .09 power.

Start construction by laying out the fuselage sides on the waxed-paper covered plan. While the cement is setting, cut out bulkheads 1 and 3, and bend the landing gear... "

    ScaleType: This (oz219) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/De_Havilland_Tiger_Moth
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
